Filter Cleaning

Recommended Posts

What can I use to clean my filters without buying a commercial cleaning solution.

soak them in a TSP and warm water solution overnight. Then rinse very, very well.

Any recommended TSP products? I tried cascade and bleach with water. So So results.

TSP is the chemical...you can get it in the paint department at most hardware stores.

TriSodium Phosphate. Make sure they give you the real thing, I've not had good results with the eco-friendly (er) versions of filter cleaner.

I use TSP, it works better than other filter cleaning products I've tried.

Dissolve in warm water, Soak overnight, rinse well and let it dry.

I have had great success using Cascade (even generic) dishwashing detergent. The important part is making sure the product contains phosphates. I use 1/2 cup in a 4gal bucket for 4-6hr and rinse well.

Measure your pH a couple of hours after returning your filter to the hot tub as it may climb if the filter wasn't rinsed well enough.
